Phillip Houghton

Phillip Houghton (born 1954) is an Australian classical guitarist and composer. Born in Melbourne, he began studying music at the age of 20 at Melba Conservatorium of Music. After a year, he then began studying privately with well-known classical pianist and guitarist Sebastian Jorgenson at the Montsalvat Artists Colony in Eltham, Victoria.

Houghton has had little compositional training, however his music has achieved critical acclaim. In particular, two movements of his piece Stélé were recorded by John Williams in his 1998 album "The Guitarist". Karin Schaupp made the first complete recording.
